It depend on how they achieve that. We could try to auto-detect it just like
we autodetect po ones. But see below.

I'm not sure it worth. It the packager didn't use po, there are good chances
that he won't be very reactive for translations. Moreover, the po format is
the best I've seen so far. there are also good chance that any other system
introduced by one guy in his side will present some major problems.

Of course, I hope to be wrong on this. But that's my fear.
